Kochi, Japan & Tonga
Wowing the World with Things We Take for Granted:
Kochi Meets Tonga
Kochi boasts beautiful coasts, forests, and mountains—and is the host for Tonga, a mountainless country. Four rugby-playing Tongan high school exchange students put on an exhibition in Yanase, a community deep in the mountains, where they befriend local kids. Filmmaker Momoko Ando guides the Yanase kids in making a video showcasing their life in the mountains, the surrounding natural beauty, and local products they take pride in. What impression will it make on the aspiring Tongan athletes?
